About

As a current school teacher at an outstanding school with full DBS clearance, I offer a range of tutoring services from KS2, 11+, GCSE to A level as a specialist English teacher. Last year I managed to help one of my students get a Grade 9 in her English GCSE: she was in Set 3.

I was a student who struggled in school, I would always be the one that was taken out of extra curricular activities for intervention but it never really worked out that well to help me. Until one day I met Abbass Karimjee; suddenly in 6 months my school grades went up so rapidly and I quickly went from being the person who always needed help and instead became the go-to person who others would always ask to help. Now I am the one often chosen by teachers to explain concepts and that is the impact that he has made in my life. He gave me the confidence to be able to tackle any topic or challenge. More...

My english skills have developed massively thanks to Abbas in the time he has spent with me. He taught me to use sophisticated vocabulary and how to structure essays and stories which were vital for my English GCSEs. In my year 11 mock I achieved a 5 in English Language but today I received a 7 in both English Language and English Literature. More...

Currently, I have a son in Y11 studying for GCSE English. I have seen a marked increase in confidence towards GCSE Language and Literature due to the approach used by Abbass. He understands the strengths and weaknesses of students and the right response required for each individual. I look forward to working fruitfully together this academic year. More...

I would highly recommend Abbass as an eleven plus tutor & for GSCE English preparation. He recently tutored my daughter through her eleven plus exams and she is now settling in well at her new Grammar school. Abbass is currently tutoring my son in year 10, who finds him very engaging and easy to understand. Thank you so much for all your help. More...

As a parent I can see a big difference within my children's learning for instance the higher levels in their confidence and being able to expand on their knowledge. I would definitely recommend Abbas to any other parent or student. More...

My daughter started preparing for the 11+ plus relatively late. She was not far off the required standard but she needed some targeted tuition. She has made a remarkable improvement in her performance since starting with Abbas. He is a good tutor, and gives feedback to me about my daughter when I come to collect her . He also recommended some important 11+ learning resources that my daughter found most helpful. I would happily recommend Abbas to anyone preparing for the 11+. More...

Personally I feel that Abbas truly helped me in English and guided me through every aspect of English ensuring I understood all topics. From an inconsistent student achieving an average of 5’s and 6’s, I attained an 8 and a 7 in GCSE language and literature. With his help and motivation I was able to switch my mindset and truly focus on what I needed to do to achieve high grades. He also showed me that English wasn’t just long boring essays but rather something much more interesting. In conclusion, he is a great teacher and I thank him for the support he has given me.Adam year 12 More...

Abbas is an excellent tutor, provides useful resources to gain and develop skills. As well as that the sessions are well constructed. I've improved within my English (GCSE) immensely and I'm more confident now within English (GCSE). I would highly recommend booking sessions with Abbas who pushes all students of different levels to achieve their full potential. More...

A professional teacher who is kind, and clever, gets to know the child really well. Really pleased with his results so far.

Q&As

That every day is different. There is always a challenge in terms of trying to explain new concepts to young children. I love the fact that there are a range of strategies that you can use to teach children. What works for one may not work for another. Being flexible is important. Identifying the next steps as the challenge to push children further is what makes good progress.

I know that schools are under too much pressure in over crowded classrooms with limited funding. My aim is to support the schools in trying to maximise the potential of the pupils.

The key indicator for me is not just that my pupils do well in my sessions, but that success translates into their classroom. My students quickly make accelerated progress in their school assessments and qualifications and my teaching always supports them in their school work as well as extends their knowledge.
